I am sorry I’m going away, you can accompany me some other day.
Marmaduke isn’t coming to the USA with me tomorrow. This time he has to stay home and look after the garret. At least having my friend taking care of things while I’m on vacation means I don’t have to worry about the place. Anyway, Marmy likes being on sentry-duty.
He’s a bit sad about not coming along. Marmy likes the wide open spaces in America.
Sadly, there just isn’t enough room for him this time around.
Since I lost my old cat Pyewacket to an attack by a huge dog, I have taken to talking to my teddy bear, Marmaduke.
This may seem an odd thing for a grown man to do, but pets are not allowed in the apartment block I now live in. No people are allowed in my place, and a guy has to talk with someone.
And you know what? I’m certain that Marmaduke takes in every word, and would give me good advice, if he only could.
I know he loves spiritual feeling of the dawn coming up over the sea, and those last minutes before sunset, just as much as I do.
Marmaduke, my teddy bear and friend.
